20-year-old Robert Douglas Dewitt was sentenced to 5 years in federal prison on charges of providing obscene material to a minor. We’re not talking about buying your cousin a Playboy either. (You see kids back in the olden days porn only came on paper in these things called magazines,. but I digress.)
It seems that while stationed in Missouri for basic training with the Army, Dewitt met a girl from Fort Bend, Texas on MySpace claiming to be 18-years-old. Then she revealed to Dewitt that she was in fact 12. Again if you can’t tell the difference between a 12 and 18-year-old girl you have issues. Dewitt did not have a problem with the girl being 12.
He had so much of not a problem with it that he sent the girl cell phone videos of him punching the clown and also got explicit cell phone pictures from the girl.
Dewitt was sentenced to 5 years in federal prison and a lifetime on the sex offenders registry.
I know I keep harping on the fact that kids should not have webcams in their rooms but also they don’t really need a cell phone that has a camera. There are more opportunities for that camera to be abused then for good purposes that I can think of.
